Theme Villanelles! This Should Work!

Try your hand at the 19-line form built on just two rhymes, the form in which lines 1 and 3 are repeated at intervals until they form the closing couplet of the poem. See Dylan Thomas's "Do Not Go Gentle," Elizabeth Bishop's "One Art," and Theodore Roethke's "The Waking" for famous examples of villanelles.

My dream by Ala Miriam


My dream

I dream because I was told to dream
But now am afraid that my dream might now be shaky.

I dream because I was told to dream
But now am afraid I found another.

Am on two way junction but I will ask for his intervention
So am afraid this dream might not be mine
Then I ask myself "what is my dream? It seems am lost?

I need to find my way
I dream because I was told to dream
